Our Thanksgiving guide will suggest tips, recipes, and crafts to ensure your Thanksgiving runs smoothly!

Around the House

You want your home to feel warm and cozy during the fall/winter season. The best way to get your home ready for your Thanksgiving visitors is to look around and look for spots to spruce up your area. For starters, decorate your living room by using fall-themed pillows or blankets. Head to your local supermarket and pick up some pumpkins and other fall décor items and spread them out around your home to really complete your Thanksgiving look!

Another important aspect of Thanksgiving planning is making sure there are enough seating choices for your guests. Living in small areas can be stressful when planning Holidays so it is crucial to have an idea of how you are going to accommodate your visitors. If seating is tight in your Lilburn home, look for DIY seating ideas. There are many creative ways to add seating in your Lilburn home, so you can fit everyone comfortably!
